Julien Herzen, PhD student at the Computer Communications and Applications Laboratory of the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, has developed an algorithm that allows the router to select the best frequency band in which to redirect data and thus avoid interference with other WiFi networks. According to Herzen, this system, which he has already patented, is capable of increasing the amount of data transferred at any given time by up to 7 times and, therefore, the final speed of the connection.
The idea behind the algorithm is to organize in real time the path the data travels through. When there are several active WiFi networks in the same area, they usually use the same frequency bands, which ends up generating a bottleneck in some data routes, while others remain free or with little traffic. The algorithm created by Herzen allows, according to the conclusions of his work, to improve the distribution of the data and increase the transmission speed.
